Subject: New announcement for GLOW Summer School



5-30 July 1999


The overall goal of the Thermi International Summer School in
Linguistics is to promote current research in the major areas of
theoretical linguistics and make it available to young researchers
from around the world. To that end, a number of advanced courses on
selected topics are organised under the auspices of GLOW. Previous
GLOW summer schools were held in Salzburg, Austria, in 1979, 1982 and
1985, in Girona, Catalonia/Spain, in 1990, 1992, 1994 and 1996, and in
Olomouc, Czech Republic, in 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997.

Organisation and venue

The 1999 Summer School is organised by GLOW and the University of
Patras. It will be held at a conference centre in Thermi, a small
village on the coast 12km/7 miles from Mytilene, Island of Lesbos,
Greece. For further information about Lesbos, see and
